Slade Poppies Part 2

 

Slade Poppies Part 2


I have called this post ” Slade Poppies Part 2 ” as it is about bringing the top and bottom section together.The second row of flowers have now been added and at this point I am quite happy with the way things are progressing. Even so  one can never be sure exactly how it’s going to look once the back lighting is introduced. The method I use is to hold the glass up to the light and make my selection before cutting and proceed that way. It’s the same system I use for all my work, something I have developed over many years. A lot of glass artists like to mount their pieces on a sheet of clear glass using Blu Tack which is then held up to the light. This provides a comprehensive preview of the panel, although it would be fairly time consuming.

With the top and bottom sections progressing so well I have now decided to build the two sides. This will help connect the two sections together. Starting out with the right hand side which worked out well I then moved onto the left. I have also added a couple of blooms just above the leaves. Feeling pretty good about the way it’s going now and looking forward to filling in the middle section.
